Intel Xeon 2697 V2 24 Core 48 Thread Madness Review



Today we return to the dual-Xeon test rig that has proven so popular. How well do the new 12 Core 24 thread 2697 V2 beasts do when doubled up?

My dangly bits tingled during the Cinebench run
Highest score i've had on my 2500k is about 7.9 and that took a good 30secs, maybe more to complete the render test.

I would love to have two of these Xeons but 1. I can't afford them and 2. I have no use for them anyway, so it would be a waste.
I still want them though!!

I would love to see you guys putting Ubuntu on this rig and running The Phoronix Test Suite. Get all of those cores up and running. Running a desktop OS on this rig may be selling it short.

Thinking about it the test suite is something you guys might want to look into as it can running on Windows and automates benchmarks and might become a tool that could be used across the board.

I'm a virtualisation consultant and we generally only buy Xeons, and while these are a 'headline' product for Intel very few will be sold simply because their $/£-per-core cost is disproportionately high compared to the ten-core E5-2670 v2 or E5-2680 v2. That said it's always nice to see a company pushing the envelope and of course in about five years our phones will have many cores

I love these overkill3D videos/reviews, so much power, so little reason for almost anyone to buy.

A good watch and read all the same.

Crazy performance, crazy price tag too though.

I'll actually be getting myself a new Workstation at work soon with 2 Xeon E5-2687W V2's for a total of 32 threads. Insane, but not as insane as 48.

Oh my <3. I really wish dual cpu configs were affordable. They look amazing. That price/gaming performance is hilariously bad but to be fair xeons aren't for gaming at all.

Agreed. I was shopping around for a Xeon proc for a low power VMWare server I'm putting together. This...would definitely have been out of the question, not to mention the huge dent in the electricity bill on top of the price! But the cores!
